TV Ratings: 'What Just Happened' Starts Quietly on Fox
Fox's aftershow parody What Just Happened??! and the CBS drama Instinct both premiered to fairly soft ratings Sunday night.
What Just Happened??!, in which host Fred Savage breaks down the events of a fictitious drama series called The Flare, drew a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49 and a little over 800,000 viewers. The low numbers aren't much of a surprise, given its time slot (following a night of animation reruns) and very specific premise.
Instinct also drew a 0.3 for its second-season premiere, down from a 0.5 average for the handful of episodes it aired in summer 2018. Its 3.6 million viewers were also down from last summer's average of 5.27 million.
Big Brother posted a 1.0 in adults 18-49 — tops for the night on the broadcast nets — and 4.48 million viewers a 8 p.m., below its numbers from earlier in the week. The Good Fight closed CBS' night with a 0.2 and 3.1 million viewers.
ABC topped the night with its game-show lineup, despite Celebrity Family Feud (0.8 in adults 18-49) declining by 0.2 from its last episode. The $100,000 Pyramid and To Tell the Truth (both 0.7) inched up in adults 18-49, and each added at least half a million viewers.
The CW's Burden of Truth drew a 0.1 in the 18-49 demographic, as it has every week so far.
ABC's 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 topped primetime, beating the 0.5 for second-place CBS. NBC and Univision tied for third at 0.4. Fox and Telemundo each averaged 0.3, and The CW came in at 0.1.
